Lucas Moura ran rampant in Tottenham’s superb 3-0 at Old Trafford last night, putting in by far his best performance in a Spurs shirt to date.
Scoring two of Tottenham’s three goals, the Brazilian was a constant threat, and quality at running the channels and holding the ball up.
As someone who plays against his regularly, Jan Vertonghen had this to say on our newest recruit: “We play against him every day in training and he’s just a nightmare to play against.
“He works hard, he has goals in him – left foot, right foot – and so much pace. He’s a great player and an even better guy, so everyone is very happy.
“Obviously, he missed pre-season last year and that’s very important to understand the style of play and having the fitness to cope with what the attackers have to do because they run so much.
“He had a great pre-season this time from what I’ve heard. He’s an unbelievable guy, everyone in the dressing room is so happy for him. I think you could see that. Everyone was hugging him.
“He had a couple of tough years in Paris and last year he didn’t play as much as he wanted. This year, he’s here and he’s an unbelievable player.”
